Stone Brewery's "Arrogant Bastard Ale", perhaps? I've had the stuff several times, and have consistently found it to be very unpleasant stuff. Liberty's "Anchor Steam" is equally bitter and unpalatable. And IPA is generally too full of hops and has a sour, bitter taste to it.

Newcastle is pretty decent, and Sam Smith's "Nut Brown Ale" is consistently good. Belhaven is Scottish, but it too is quite excellent. And there are quite a few other English ales that I have found to be great.

My personal favorites are the Belgian ales, of course- Chimay and Duvel are around the top of my list. Xingu from Brasil is also wonderful, as is "Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout", and quite a few of the ones from Unibroue. Of course, on a hot summer day I prefer something like Redhook's "Sunrye" or even Corona...

English beers are much like our own- they vary greatly in quality. I mean, does anyone really like Genesee Cream Ale?
